Langford moved up to second place in SSML Division One after putting nine goals past Ampthill Town.
The Reds were at it from the get-go as James Potter put two shots just wide, while Ampthill went close when Aaron Ramsey fired over the bar.
Pat Daly then hit the side-netting before, after 21 minutes, the floodgates opened.
First Stephen Brooks started a six-man move before setting up Jason Penman for 1-0, and four minutes later Potter scored his side’s second.
Daly then teed up Potter before Daly then turned scorer after being set up by Craig Meyrick.
Daly was then brought down in the box as Langford continue to push forward, with Michael Moss converting, before a minute before the break Tom Bryant headed in from close range to make it 6-0 and a miserable 45 minutes for the visitors.
Langford started the second half at a slower tempo, and Ampthill worked their way into the game and were deservedly rewarded in the 57th minute when Jamie Cerminara headed in a corner.
This woke Langford up, and they started to close down and take charge.
Brooks was brought down in the box and Moss scored, while in the last two minutes Langford got two more.
First Sean Downey headed in Meyrick’s corner for 8-1 and then Daly latched onto a downward header from Downey and shot home his second, taking him to 22 for the season from 19 starts.
Langford: Gardner, Redmond, Scotney, Murray, Meyrick, Moss, Brooks, Daly, Penman, Bryant. Subs: Anderson (used), Putnam, Downey (used), Ellis (used), Waite.
Langford’s next match is at home to Buckingham Athletic in the league on Saturday, November 19.
